If you are anything like us, then you go nuts for good short films. There is just something about connecting to characters, or getting invested in a story that only lasts a few minutes that is intriguing and exciting. Sifting through the several thousand shorts on YouTube can be fun, but tedious work. Lucky for us, Brief Macabre has spent the time sifting through the thousands of films to select a few deemed “worth watching” and has organized them on one easy to use website.
Short films are often the overlooked and under-appreciated sect of film that never quite gets the recognition it deserves. In a perfect world, short films would play before every theatrical release. This is hardly the case, Disney/Pixar exempt, but nevertheless, the world needs more outlets for these short creations.
Terek Puckett, Founder & Operator of The Brief Macabre believes that the short film is ready to have its glory, and he’s just the person to bring it to the masses. He has painstakingly curated a slew of high quality, live action short films and has organized them in an easy to find way on his website. The idea is to give these short films and their filmmakers the respect they deserve, and an audience that will appreciate their work.
Not only does Puckett have a collection of great films, but they are organized into categories like apocalyptic, demon, killer kids, and more. Do yourself a favor and head to their website, and follow The Brief Macabre on Facebook
